Report: US agents question bin Laden widows

US agents have been given access to the widows of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden by Pakistani security forces, a news report said Friday.

The initial questioning of the three women yielded little information, CNN reported, citing two US and one Pakistani government official involved in the case, DPA reported.

Members of Pakistan's intelligence services were also present at the questioning, where the women showed some hostility towards the US personnel, the report said.

Bin Laden was shot dead in his home in northern Pakistan by US special forces on May 2, ending a 10-year manhunt for the mastermind of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the US.

The discovery that he had been living under the noses of Pakistani authorities for up to five years has strained relations between Washington and Islamabad, which initially refused the US forces access to the widows, two of which are from Saudi Arabia, and the third from Yemen.
